A burden is not a Cross.

Burden is something inescapable; the Cross, however, is subject to personal choice and can therefore be avoided.

What the first Cross in history was, so the countless smaller Crosses will be which shall follow afterwards: just as the original Cross was chosen by the Lord, so the Crosses for today must also be chosen by us.
